Not a good start for Jim Harbaugh, Stanford's new coach. Harbaugh, left, was quoted this week as saying that USC's Pete Carroll would be gone after this season.
"Perhaps the reason it's been up and down here [at Stanford] is that no one has stayed here 20 years," Harbaugh told Dennis Dodd of CBS Sportsline. "… Charlie Weis is going to do that at Notre Dame. [Jim] Tressel at Ohio State. Pete's doing it. He's only got one more year, though. He'll be there one more year. That's what I've heard. I heard it inside the staff."
Carroll told Gary Klein of the L.A. Times: "If he's going to make statements like that, he ought to get his information right. And if he has any questions about it he should call me."
The teams meet Oct. 6 at the L.A. Coliseum. Thanks to Trent!
